Average Bench: 88.5% - 81st / 836

Based on 503 user benchmarks.  Models: OCZ-VECTOR150, OCZ-VECT OR150

Comparing the 150 to the original Vector is disappointing, the newer 150 actually offers marginally worse performance than its predecessor. A strange result but verified (at least partly) by figures on OCZ's own website: 100K 4K read IOPS for the Vector vs 90K 4K read IOPS for the 150. The newer 150 comes with a 5 year warranty which covers 50GB/day vs. the original Vectors 20GB/day but even this should be taken with a pinch of salt considering that the OCZ stock price is currently trading at around seven cents per share, an all time low. Despite the fact that new Vector 150 performs worse than its predecessor it's still a very competent performer and if prices drop, it has the potential to become a decent value proposition. In the meantime however there are far better deals available elsewhere.  [Dec '13 SSDrivePro]
